Frontier Culture Museum of Virginia FY2019 $250,000 FY2020 $250,000 GF

Page 249, line 7, strike "$2,597,716" and insert "$2,847,716".
Page 249, line 8, strike "$2,612,716" and insert "$2,862,716".


(This amendment provides $250,000 GF each year to allow the museum to address security vulnerabilities by contracting with a professional security firm to manage daily agency security operations, respond to incidents occurring on agency property, and if necessary, coordinate a broader response with local law enforcement agencies for a more visible uniformed security presence during public hours. Recent commercial and residential growth on land immediately adjacent to the museum campus has brought additional daily unmonitored traffic and activity across and around agency property. Due to the current lack of a perimeter barrier and the close proximity to interstates 81 and 64, this raises concern for the safety and security of staff and visitors, which includes over 35,000 students on field trips annually.)
